Michell Fluid Arm / NOS / Neu - New / #90106
Noch nie ausgepackter/aufgebauter NOS Einpunkt Tonarm, bedämpft. Seriennummer # 90106, in OVP, mit allem Zubehör & Manual. Ideal für "leichte" Tonabnehmer mit höherer Nadelnachgiebigkeit oder zum Beispiel Decca Tonabnehmer (...auch da!).
The Michell Fluid arm has been developed specifically for use with modern cartridges of not more than 16 grammes weight, tracking at not more than 2 grammes.
It employs a uni-pivot working in an oil filed well, so that the arm beam assembly relies for its lateral support, stability and resonant damping on the fluid surrounding the pivot.
This results in a substantially friction free pivot of high stability.
An adjustable eccentric counterweight allows both lateral and longitudinal balancing of the arm.
Fine control of longitudinal balancing to allow adjustment of the stylus tracking force within a fraction of a gramme is provided by a screwed counterweight.
Also provided on the fluid arm is a bias compensating device so designed as to use a rolling motion.
An adjustable bias weight operating through a pulley gives correct compensation as the stylus moves towards the centre of the record.
A lifting and positioning device is provided, incorporating a hydraulic lowering hand wheel which lowers the arm onto the record automatically, but which can be over-ridden when required for accurate manual positioning.
A plug-in headshell is fitted for mounting the cartridge.
